Vivaldi and Bach Double Bill

Spent yesterday evenin g having a wonderful time at a double bill concert in St Margarets Church as part of the King’s Lynn Festival. The early concert (7:00-8:30) featured four works for strings by Antonio Vivaldi magnificently played by a superb ensemble. Listening to this music made me feel sorry for those unfortunates whose only experience of Vivaldi is the butchered version of the Four Seasons played down the phone when someone sticks you on hold. The second concert featured a choice selection of Keyboard works by Johann Sebastian Bach, played with quite incredible virtuosity by Carole Cerasi on a Harpsichord. This emphasised the sheer folly of having Bach keyboard works played on a piano – it really should be a harpsichord or an organ.

To all the many people who have indicated liking my posts (12 WordPress messages, all positive, in my inbox) a big thankyou – it is appreciated.
